Subordinating Conjunctions are used to combine a Dependent Clause with Independent Clause

Examples

 

When he was young,he was very naughty

Here,

'He was very naughty' is an independent sentence

but

' he was young' is a phrase dependent on it(it has no meaning on its own)

Both are linked by 'When' which is a Subordinating Conjunction
When  he was young, he was very naughty.jpg

 

Example 2

After he became old,he became sober

Here,

'He became sover' is an independent sentence

but

' he became old' is a phrase dependent on it

Both are linked by 'After'  which is a Subordinating Conjunction

After  he became old, he became sober.jpg
